Can I use the wilton paste colors to dye melted chocolate? I bought a bunch of that crappy (haha) wilton chocolate that is made to be melted, and I want to dye it christmas colors. I have done this before, but it was before I discovered cake decorating and I used grocery store food dye to dye the chocolate, and it absolutely ruined it.

Thanks for the help CC'ers.. and Happy Holidays!!

i used wilton colors to dye chocolate before.... it wasnt chocolate melts but white chocolate or rather almond bark. it will keep the off white color and I didnt try to get deep bright colors, but it worked for the pastels i was going for. i hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. I think almond bark is pretty similar.. so i'm guessing it will work. Thanks for the tip about it being a bit pastel. I like pink a whole lot better than red.. so I guess everyone will have to settle for my pink and green colored chocolate pretzels. Yum!

any coloring that is not water based will work.

I just did this yesterday with the Wilton chocolate melts. It worked fine!

To color choclate-avoid powder and anything water based, all else is fine.
